L'Hirondelle and le Papillon were built in 1838 and have many wonderful period features. The solid stone walls keep the old houses blissfully cool in summer, aided by air conditioning on those very hot days.

In the winter, you can enjoy the heating and sit around the huge open log fire, have fun in the heated endless pool, the jacuzzis' and the sauna/steam barrel in the garden.


L'hirondelle has a lovely summer pool  surrounded by huge sundecks with comfy loungers, tables and chairs, ideal for sun-worshippers!  We have a heated endless pool too a huge hot-tub and a sauna/steam barrel in the garden. There's plenty of room to run about here and we have a wealth of fruit trees which surround our little forest including apricots, walnut, figs, peaches, olives, pears, apples, cherries and lots and lots of plums!

We also have wifi, English-speaking  TV, DVD players, speakers and Wii if you prefer indoor entertainment!

What awaits you at Bordeneuve...

L'Hirondelle and le Papillon  boast a lovely Summer pool,also a heated endless pool which is open all year round.  Swim to your hearts content for as long as you like with the contra current jets. This pool has sparkly LED's and has yet another massive sundeck by day or when evening falls you can dance the night away under the stars!!
Swim and Spa at any time of the day or at night. 

Just to make your relaxation complete, in the garden you will find a 6-seater sauna and steam barrel, enjoy the sauna, then pour water onto the coals for steam, the smell of the red cedar really is a treat for the senses.

In the summerhouse adjacent to the heated swimming pool, you will find a quiet place to sit and relax. We have boules, a pool table and a table tennis table too and we haven't forgoten the kids!  New for 2019 there is a lovely adventure playground at the end of the garden. Stroll down to a 2 tier sundeck, excellent for the adults to supervise. After the tables chairs and loungers you will find a  trampoline, a slide and kids swings, hours of fun for everyone!

Air conditioning is available in both properties in both living areas and bedrooms.
Both our properties have fully equipped kitchens with range cookers, American fridges with ice makers and all the equipment you may need and our table in L'hirondelle can be extended for big family get togethers.
When the warm days of summer arrive, plenty of space for you all to eat outside too, everyone can eat together outside on the terrace by the pool or choose your spot and enjoy the balmy evening air filled with the song of the cicadas. There are 2 acres of garden and private woodland so everyone will be able to find their own special place!

If you don't want to cook, we now have an amazing private chef who can visit just one special night or every night of your holiday. Torquil can prepare and serve a 4 course candlelight dinner to remember and that everyone can enjoy.

We have lots of grown up treats at Bordeneuve but again we havent forgotton the kids!
Our Kids Room in Le Papillon will have them running to bed!!
Sleeps 4 + 1. Colourful bunting, crayons and paper, books, toys and games, DVDs, teepee in the corner, Wii and a delightful dressing up box that every aspiring princess and spiderman will adore!
We love babies here, we have cots, highchairs, baby monitor, steriliser, changing mats, baby bath all for our smallest guests!

We all had an excellent time and would recommend Bordeneuve to others for a group holiday. We also made good use of the tennis courts in the village as well as the pools and hot tub!
